Church Re-Entry Guidelines

In this video, we tried to share the new precautions and protocols we will be following in welcoming you back into the Sanctuary. While the video is light-hearted, the decision made by our church’s lay and clergy leadership is no laughing matter.

UPDATE: Pre-registration is not required at this time. Please join us!

Please know that we have worked in consultation with other local church pastors, and our district and conference leadership. We have followed the data trails and trends of national, state, and local leaders. This has been challenging because information on COVID-19 continues to evolve.

EXPECTIONS FOR RE-ENTRY:

If you decide to attend services, please understand the following guidelines:

-Expect to wear a mask.

-Expect to be offered hand sanitizer.

-Expect to be asked if you’ve registered your attendance.

-If you haven’t, then expect to wait until all who have registered are seated.

-Expect to have an usher take you to a seat of their choosing.

-Expect to be asked to sit with added social distancing.

-Expect to be asked to continue to socially distance, even in greeting others in our church family.

-Expect minimal people leading us musically.

*NO CHOIR

*SMALLER PRAISE TEAM

*MUCH LESS CONGREGATIONAL SINGING

ABUNDANCE OF CAUTION:

Please know that we have not made our decision to reenter physically present worship lightly. Your safety and the safety of others worshipping around you is our highest priority.

We also wish to remind you that attending a corporate worship service in these days comes with real risks.

*If you are someone who falls into a high risk category…

*If you come into frequent contact with others who are at high risk…

*If you are in contact with large numbers of people,

…then you need to consider continuing to worship online or parking outside to listen to our service on the radio (87.7 FM).

It’s up to the church to take measures, but it’s up to each of you to treat your life as a treasure!
